Frequently asked questions
Why would a blood blister appear for no reason?
Blood blisters sometimes appear due to friction against the skin, such as from clothes or shoes, or when the skin is pinched. If you have a blood blister that isn't going away on its own after weeks or months, you should have it checked by a doctor, because it may be a sign of skin cancer.

What do cancerous sun spots look like?
Melanoma typically stands out as looking different from the rest of the lesions on your skin and often shows one of the ABCD signs: Asymmetry, irregular Border, multiple Colours, or Diameter larger than 6mm. Non-melanoma skin cancers such as squamous or basal cell carcinomas can appear as a scaly red patch on sun-exposed areas of the skin, an open sore that won't heal, a rough or thick patch of irritated skin, a raised growth, or even a blister. They can become crusty and easily bleed. Skin cancers may show no symptoms at all, which is why regular professional skin checks are so important.
How much does a skin biopsy cost in Australia?
Comprehensive skin cancer checks, biopsies and treatments are privately billed, which means they are not fully covered by Medicare. However, after you pay the upfront cost of the skin biopsy appointment, you can usually claim a partial Medicare rebate.
What is mistaken for skin cancer?
Skin cancer can sometimes look like a blister, pimple, ulcer, a sore that won't heal, a scar, a patch of irritated skin, or it can be mistaken for a benign freckle. The best way to determine if a lesion is cancerous is by having it assessed by a doctor.
